Jewish Community Foundation San Diego can help you Create a Jewish Legacy to support Jewish life for generations to come. What will your legacy be?
This visionary program has been responsible for building a culture of legacy giving in San Diego. As a result of Create a Jewish Legacy, endowment dollars raised help ensure that vital programs flourish in good times and bad. Leaving a Jewish legacy ensures that agencies, schools, and synagogues are able to provide evolving, innovative programs as community needs shift. Your legacy helps future generations continue building Jewish life in San Diego and beyond.
The bequests established through Create a Jewish Legacy are inspiring examples of l’dor v’dor, the passing of values from one generation to the next. The Jewish Community Foundation offers complimentary consultations for Legacy Planning with the utmost confidentiality.
By providing for organizations through your will, trust, retirement assets, or other means, you are sharing your desire to support the Jewish future. Your bequest or other planned gift of any size will keep our community strong for future generations.
